At the lowering valve should be the electric solenoid for the lowing valve. Are you getting battery voltage(24) to the solenoid when you select lower from upper or lower control? If you are, the solenoid or the valve itself may be bad. Remove it and check for obvious damage. If no voltage to the lowering valve, check the wiring from valve to harness.
